@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:29 AM)

I'm going to use Motul motor oil for my track use and was looking for suggestions on the oil filter to use. Best I can find is guys are saying to stick with the Ford OEM filter. Any suggestions?

@  KT/GT : (10 July 2017 - 10:28 AM)

I figured out how to disable to default valves in the pipes so the car's exhaust can be in track/sport mode all the time. With the car running and the exhaust in track mode (valves open) just unplug the wire connection at the rear of the car right by the exhaust tips. The valves must be open when you do this as the wires disconnected keeps it in whatever position they are in when you disconnect them. When you start the car it shows you a warning that the exhaust mode is not available but it goes off in 2 to 3 seconds and you do not have to hit "ok" to get rid of it. Much easier than changing it to track/sport mode each time.

@  smokum : (10 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Million dollar question ..... I would read the posts under oil consumption and you will get a better idea.

@  pguile131 : (09 July 2017 - 08:11 PM)

What is normal oil consumption

@  JohnCappola : (08 July 2017 - 10:05 AM)

I am new to this forum and would like to learn more about the 2016 Shelby GT-350.

@  KT/GT : (03 July 2017 - 06:08 PM)

I also will be using this car on the track and I have been told to disable the air bags as they have been activating on the rumble strips. Is this as simple as taking out a fuse?

I bought a spare kit for my 2014 GT, but they were not staggered wheels. So since I bought the GT350 I don't feel comfortable taking it on a long trip with no spare. If there is a really bad tire problem that fix-flat won't fix anything.

 

Anyone know of a spare kit. I called the dealer and she said she could not find one. I was thinking of buying a wheel and tire to fit.

 

Any suggestions?

The overall diameter for the front tire is 27.1", and the rear is 27.4", so if you can find an aftermarket spare with the correct bolt pattern, it should work, but make sure it fits in the trunk well. Ford does sell a spare tire kit, part # FR3Z-1K007-C, for the mustang. It has a disclaimer "not for cars originally equipped with summer only tires or 20" wheels. Our cars are equipped with summer only tire, but this would be better than nothing in a pinch.

 

And you are correct, there are some things fix-a-flat wont fix. I hit a pothole in the Bronx in '12 mustang and all the fix-a-flat in the world was not going to fill up a tire with a 10" gash in it. Luckily I was on the highway and got picked up by a tow truck, that was waiting near the pothole :) , he took me to a shop he knew just off the highway. The shop didn't have a garage, he just dropped me at a parking meter in front of the shop. In less than 15 min, and about $60 I had a reasonable used replacement tire on my car and I was on my way. I was lucky it could have been much worse.

Thanks for the part number. It does fit the GT350 now. I had a spare for my 2014 GT Premium. When I first bought the GT350 the spare did not say that it fit. So good, i will buy one.

I'd think the Torsen wouldn't be too happy with running rear tires that aren't the same diameter.

Part # FR3Z-1K007-C  does NOT fit. After reading this thread and checking fitment online (confirmed that it now states it will fit) I ordered this spare tire kit. I pulled my front wheel to verify before putting it in the trunk. It does NOT clear the brake caliper. A wheel spacer would not help as the inside diameter is not sufficient.

Several people in the GT500 community looked at the same scenaro and the fronts are easier on the GT500 to fit

 

That cant be said for our beloved GT350's 

 

With the 6 piston brembo calipers it makes finding a spare that will fit in the trunk is very tricky indeed

I hope it works but make sure the dealer knows that this is for a GT350 and if it doesnt you expect a full refund

DITTO  ...... personally to get a rim to clear the front caliper and fit in the trunk and still have usable room left over is a tall order in deed.

 

Personally dont think ford makes a kit and that a rim and tire to clear the front rotor .... heck .... would it even fit in our trunks ?

Ok, I'm not a tire slime fan at all so...aside from asking how the above worked out (??) on the "spare" that fits the front AND in the trunk...I'll ask the dumb-guy question...is there a spare (like from Ford) that will fit for a short period on all four wheels and NOT fit in the trunk? OR...am i smarter (given that it looks above like the spare is 250 anyway) to just buy another (no, not carbon fiber!) wheel and tire and leave it sitting in the garage? Don't really care if it goes in the trunk because I don't do long trips but I don't really want to watch someone pull mine onto a roll back at 2 am with all the ground effects; heck, I rub leaving my driveway. LOL. It looks above like someone discounted the part number originally posted so I'm wondering how all that washed out. Happy spring.....let em roll boys.

These cars Im sure arent easy to flat bed ..... already thought of that. First you can defintily get a wheel and tire combo to work but its just going to sit in the trunk on the carpet. It wont look pretty

 

The GT500's had similiar issues and what people did is they get the smaller rim and if they had a flat on the front ... they would take a rear rim off and put it up front and take the smaller wheel for the rear ..... much easier to fit the rear than the front but much more work too

i drive back and forth from time to time to Miami or Tampa ..... those are about 3 hour jaunts. The question is on a long trip how often do we get flats ..... rarely

 

If someone found a rim and tire combo that worked it would have to be pretty massive and take the whole trunk space

Just FYI to follow up with the captioned post....the ad certainly says all the right stuff BUT they're not open sale just yet. Looks like 339 will be the price point for the set up including a jack. See the link:

If anyone nabs one, the feedback will save a lot of pain. I'll do likewise if I'm first.
